UH Manoa Chancellor’s Citation for Meritorious Teaching 2002-2006 Award Recipients
Manoa’s Meritorious Teachers
College of Business Administration
Jenny Teruya is an assistant professor of accountancy in the College of Business Administration. Teruya believes that teaching extends beyond the textbook and course material. Teruya tries to make connections between the courses students take with their own lives and career goals. Her classes teach students about life, ethics, meeting deadlines, respecting the ideas of other people, working hard and juggling different obligations.
Teruya has proven to be one of the brightest stars in the School of Accountancy. She helped develop the new accounting information systems course and is involved in the school’s overall curriculum development. Teruya efforts have been recognized and rewarded by the college. She’s received the Dennis Ching Outstanding Teaching Excellence Award and the Beta Alpha Psi’s Outstanding Faculty Award.
Instead of addressing her "Professor Teruya," her students call her "Jenny." She believes the personable salutation contributes to a pleasant learning environment. A student said, "In my years in UH Manoa, this instructor is the most organized one that I have had she shows the caring, the time and the responsibility of a quality teacher."
